Movies on the Lawn – Up

Rated PG, 96 minutes

Carl Fredricksen spent his entire life dreaming of exploring the globe and now in his 78th year he launches his house into the sky via thousands of balloons. Right after liftoff he discovers he has a stowaway in the form of an over-optimistic 8-year-old wilderness explorer named Russell. This hilarious journey takes you into a lost world with the least likely duo on Earth. Movies on the Lawn is free and open to the public. A $5 movie combo is available and includes a hot dog, small coke and popcorn. Information: 915-747-5711 or www.utep.edu/union

Final exams – Summer I


7 p.m.

UTEP Dinner Theatre


The UTEP Dinner Theatre is proud to present its third production of the musical Metropolis, based on the 1927 silent film by Fritz Lang. The year is 2066 and the inhabitants of the world are divided into two classes: an elite “ruling” class living in luxury on the planet’s surface and the working class, who toil below ground, doomed to serve from birth to death as slaves to the monstrous machines they tend. The score for Metropolis was written by Joseph Brooks, Academy Award winning composer of “You Light Up My Life.”  Time magazine calls Metropolis “a rousing and at times spell-binding musical!” Information: www.utep.edu/udt
